On tap at Wedge. Aroma of overripe apples, peat moss.
Pretty copper color.
Fresh malt, tasty yeast flavors, oak notes as well
Dry feel sort of like a white wine. Finished well.

First beer Iíve had from Wedge I think. 5th Annual Epic and Rare gathering. Medium gold. Slightly earthy hop aroma. Flavor is lemony with a good bit of chamomille flower. Interesting. Rather unique really, canít tell if I liked it or not. Hats off for pulling out a character that I donít recall experiencing before.

Slightly understated for a saison compared to others in the style--at times it tastes almost like a very good pilsner. But nevertheless this is a strong offering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Swingtop liter bottle pours a murky light golden body with a small offwhite head. No lacing. Body is medium and barely carbonated, leading me to believe that maybe there was a problem with the seal. Taste is overly sweet, with caramel and honey notes sweeping away the subtle spice and herbal hop nuances. A hint of cinnamon in the finish. Sweet saisons just donít do anything for me.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Springslickerís house. Pours a hazy amber with a dissipating rocky head. Aroma of sweet wheaty malts, burlap, and hay. Lighter side of medium bodied with nice natural mouthfeel. Flavor of toffee, wheat, fruity phenols, and butter. Almost Biere de Garde like. There was something odd (not in a bad way) about this that I canít pinpoint. Oh well, itís worth trying.

22-ounce bottle from Bruisiní Ales in Asheville. Refreshing, very drinkable beer for outdoors/summer, and underrated in saison class. Rich golden color with light gold head. Various fruit flavors.

Bottle at PPRBSG09. Amber pour with a thin head. Very light apricot and peach nose. Light spiciness and a touch of grapefruit as well. There is a bit of banana on the top as well. Quite sweet which is always a turn-off for these types of beers.

Got to try this at PPRBSG09. Pours a goldish orange in color. Aroma consists of some barnyard, grass funk , and earthiness along with bread. Flavor is somewhat floral with citrus, spice, honey and pineapple. Pineapple seems to really stand out in my opinion.
